Are you ready for one of the easiest appetizers of all time? I laughed at how simple this was.

This recipe is perfect when you’re having friends over and you want to spend more time catching up and less time preparing food.

Goat Cheese Dip Ingredients

  • Goat Cheese– Obviously you can’t make goat cheese dip without it! Look for a plain log of goat cheese without added flavors or herbs.
  • Marinara Sauce– I like Rao’s Tomato Basil which has a delicious flavor and no added sugar.
  • Baguette– I like a crusty french baguette but you can also ciabatta or a sourdough baguette. Any kind of bread with a hearty, chewy crust will be perfect!
  • Olive Oil– Drizzling a little olive oil on the baguette helps create a deliciously crispy baguette that isn’t too dry.

Tips for Making Goat Cheese Dip

  • Be sure to use a log of goat cheese, not goat cheese crumbles. Crumbled or shredded cheeses usually have anti-caking agents to keep the cheese from sticking together, which can alter the texture of this dish.
  • Use a small, oven safe dish. Mine is about 3 inches by 6 inches which is the perfect size for a small log of goat cheese.
  • To make this recipe gluten free, simply serve it with a gluten free baugette or gluten free crackers.

Note: If you have an olive oil spray, you can spray the bread lightly for an even coating.
